The Asticom Group of Companies plans to generate 15,000 jobs in the next five years as it aims to capture a bigger market in Southeast Asia and tap more small-and-medium enterprises and startups in the country.
The company generated 3,000 jobs for Filipinos in 2021 to help address the job market crisis caused by the prolonged pandemic.
Asticom, a shared services company under the Ayala Group, said it believes in providing beneficial impact to support the Philippine economy by playing matchmaker to those who have lost their means of livelihood.
The group said it continues to improve people’s lives through the help of subsidiaries including information technology and business services outsourcing company Asti Business Services Inc., HR and digital solutions provider HCX Technology Partners Inc., engineering firm Fiber Infrastructure and Network Services Inc. and logistics provider BRAD Warehouse and Logistics Services Inc.
“We are committed to creating opportunities for our fellow Filipinos at Asticom. Together with this promise, we also provide valuable talents and solutions for our clients through our shared services offerings and technology,” Asticom Group president and chief executive Mharicar Castillo-Reyes.
“Our diverse business portfolio and our subsidiaries support the realization of our mission of improving Filipino lives, especially in the midst of the ongoing health crisis,” she said.
Asticom’s expertise in providing the right people to its growing clientele opened several opportunities for Filipino job seekers amid a challenging labor market. The new jobs involve IT, HR, accounting, administrative and engineering roles in the subsidiaries.
The group also plays a key role in lowering the skills mismatch, an obstacle many individuals face. The skills mismatch, a divergence in available jobs and workers’ skills, is a critical factor in the 6.4-percent unemployment and 14-percent underemployment rates in the country.
Asticom said it seeks to positively impact Filipino lives and contribute to the country’s economic recovery through its diverse business portfolio.
